PICK A SIDE: Should Ontario return to Stage 2?

 

With students returning to schools, and many businesses reopening, many Ontarians are concerned about the rising number of COVID-19 cases.

For the last few days, the number of new daily cases have been increasing, and the daily count surpassed 400 on September 18—the biggest single-day increase since early June.

As a result, many people have been calling for the Province to send Ontario back to Stage 2.

For now, it appears the government is hesitant to do this.

Public health officials have attributed the rise in cases to social gatherings, and as a result, the government has imposed stricter limits on gatherings—Toronto, Peel, and Ottawa reduced the max limit social events to 10 people.

However, some believe this isn’t enough.

Additionally, many are concerned the government’s plan to send students back to schools without drastically reducing class sizes will only further exacerbate the rise in cases.

Moreover, while many believe Ontario should be relegated to Stage 2, others, particularly small business owners who have been struggling during the pandemic and have implemented additional safety precautions do not.

So, Mississauga, what do you think? Should Ontario return to Stage 2?
